Thursday, June 4 – Georgia House Representative Park Cannon

“With all the changes affecting traditional services amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the library was determined to find a meaningful way to produce a summer reading program and make it engaging for all ages,” said Gayle Holloman, director of the Fulton County Library System. “We are thrilled with the work our staff has done to create a wonderful array of programs that can be enjoyed from the comfort and safety of home. We invite you to imagine your story.”
Additional special guest reader announcements are forthcoming. Updates about this year’s summer reading program will be made weekly at www.fulcolibrary.org.
